• I was truly moved by Margaret Forster's ingeniously structured and beautifully written memoir... A really wonderful book

    Juliet Nicolson, Evening Standard BOOKS OF THE YEAR
  • A beautiful exploration of her life in relation to the homes she has made'

    Rachel Joyce, Observer BOOKS OF THE YEAR
  • Such a clever idea. It's a memoir sited in bricks and mortar... social and personal history spliced together

    Penelope Lively, Guardian BOOKS OF THE YEAR
  • Until its shocking, throat-catching end, this latest book is a deceptively simple trek evoking everywhere [Margaret Forster] has lived

    Melanie Reid, The Times
  • Reads like one of Forster's well-loved novels: full of sharp observation and gentle wit

    Bel Mooney, Daily Mail
  • In both books and homes, we find wry humour and a great deal of poignancy

    Sarah Franklin, Sunday Express
  • Like sitting down for tea with a highly intelligent woman and chatting, not so much about "a room of one's own" as "a home of one's own"... fascinating and touching

  • This is a lovely and touching evocation of what home means to one woman, and within this is a universality that many will connect with

    Shirley Whiteside, Herald
